Things won't be so friendly in this International friendly, as Jurgen Klinsmann is ready to send a message to the soccer world that he will take USA to the next level. This match against Costa Rica will be an opportunity to do just that.
The U.S.A and Costa Rica are currently knotted at 11-11-6 in head-to-head match ups. This will be their first friendly match since 1995, however, these two have met numerous times since then in CONCACAF action.
This will be Klinsmann's second match as the coach of the US, and his addition to the sidelines means interest in this contest will be at a far greater level than usual for a friendly.
